“My cat did not want to be at the vet today. So he kept sticking his head in this trash hole,” Perez tweeted. “I died.”

It seems that James is not the first cat to do this, however, as the tweet went viral others chimed in with photos of their own obviously very incredibly stealth kitties.

The popularity of the tweet can essentially be boiled down to just how wholly relatable it is. Who among us hasn’t wanted to stick their head in a trash hole when waking up on a Monday morning or getting roped into a family gathering?

As such, the photos became a meme as people began retweeting them with examples of times that they were the cat with its head in a trash hole:
